Motorola has teased the launch of its next flagship smartphone, the Motorola X40 Pro. The upcoming Motorola flagship smartphone will launch with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. Motorola is likely to launch the phone in global markets, including India, as the Edge 40 Pro. The device is likely to debut in China in December 2022. While you wait for the official launch date announcement, MySmartPrice brings to you the design renders of the Motorola X40 Pro, aka the Edge 40 Pro.
Courtesy of tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer, aka OnLeaks, the design renders reveal the Motorola Edge 40 Pro’s front and rear panel design. The leaked renders suggest that the Moto Edge 40 Pro is set to get some design changes compared to the outgoing model. Let’s take a look at the Motorola Edge 40 Pro design renders, specifications and other details ahead of its official launch.
Motorola X40 Pro design renders
The Motorola Edge 40 Pro is expected to launch early next year in India. Prior to its India launch, the phone will debut as the Motorola X40 Pro in China. The Motorola flagship is getting some design changes compared to the Edge 30 Pro, according to the high-quality design renders shared by OnLeaks exclusively with MySmartPrice.
The rear panel of the phone now sports a square-shaped camera module. It will house a triple-camera setup and an LED flash inside. At the centre of the back panel is the Motorola logo.
On the front, there is a hole-punch cutout at the top centre of the 6.67-inch curved display. The design renders also confirm that the phone’s right spine houses the power button and the volume rocker. The USB Type-C port can be found sandwiched between the primary speaker grille and the microphone cutout. There are cutouts at the top edge, which could presumably be for the secondary speaker or a microphone.
The Motorola X40 Pro measures 161.3 x 73.9 x 8.6mm, as per the latest leak we have received from OnLeaks. With the camera module bump, the device is 10.8mm thick. The X40 Pro 5G is likely to come with a glass back. Motorola launched the Edge 30 Pro with a plastic frame but considering the Edge 30 Fusion came with a metal chassis, we can expect the upgrade to be passed on to the upcoming successor phone too. Since the render images have antenna lines on the frame, we can expect the X40 5G to feature a metal frame.
Moto X40 Pro: Specifications and everything we know so far
Other details of the Motorola flagship phone have been tipped in the past. The smartphone is likely to sport a 6.67-inch OLED display with a Full HD+ resolution. It will support a 165Hz refresh rate and is likely to come with HDR10+ certification as well.
The rear camera setup will feature a 50MP main camera, a 50MP ultrawide camera and a new 12MP telephoto camera, according to the rumour mill. For selfies, there will be a 60MP front camera sensor.
Under the hood, there will be the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. The phone reportedly outperformed the Dimensity 9200 SoC’s score on AnTuTu. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2-powered Edge 40 Pro scored 1312901, whereas the Dimensity 9200 SoC scored 1266101.
We can expect Motorola to launch the phone with up to 12GB of RAM. The base model will feature 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The 12GB RAM option, on the other hand, could come with 256GB of internal storage.
The phone is confirmed to come with an IP68 rating for water and dust resistance. It is likely to pack a beefy 5000mAh battery and 68W fast charging support. Lastly, it will boot Android 13-based MyUX 4.0 out of the box.
